It’s honestly the most beautiful and thoughtful gift I have ever received and I just cried when I opened it.

    I LOVE Etsy! A lot of my gifts come from Etsy. Would you guys consider doing an Etsy monthly update with cool finds or your favorites. It’s supporting small businesses and you can find more interesting items. Thanks! (I would gladly share some of my favorites to help with this piece.)

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Holly! 🥰Thanks for the request and the feedback!! You can expect to see this routinely! Yay! 🎉 💞 Feel free to leave your recommendations here in the comments! 🙌

    So random, but does anyone know what font is on that cutting board? I love it so much!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! I’m not finding any details on the product page about the font. I don’t see that there are options to choose from. You could always contact the seller for additional details. Hoping this helps! 💞

    • Beth

      I’m pretty sure its “Bobmbshell pro” I used to use it a lot with my small business! 🙂

  4. Lusine

    I LOVE this!! So many cool products on Etsy!

  5. Ana

        I couldn’t find them either.

      • Betsy

        try just one h

        • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Thanks, Betsy! I do see that shop here when I do one “h”.

  6. Stella

    Thanks for this, I love Etsy and I just ordered the most beautiful and personal anniversary gift for my daughter and husband.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Those are beautiful! Thanks for sharing the link.

  7. Molly Scott

    Exploding Gift Box could be a Valentine’s Day gift with a lot of pictures. Just search explosion gift box! Many come up.

    • Andrea

      Thank you Molly! I love this idea for Valentines Day or even Mothers Day! 🙂

  8. kalynn

    I’m a person that HATES paying for shipping. I avoided Etsy because of shipping costs. However, this last year I have found so many unique products that I absolutely love, that I now 100% feel the shipping costs of individual items is worth it for me. I found some amazing gifts for Christmas on Etsy that everyone loved (even ones mentioned here, like the personalized Amazon box ornament). I just ordered a new calendar from Etsy and I’m in love with it. I love supporting these small business owners. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the convenience and selection of Amazon, but my Etsy purchases make my heart feel a little happier. Keep the Etsy posts coming!

    • Gigi

      A lot of sellers ship for free!

  9. Samanthology

    I LOVE Etsy!! I get so many wonderful gifts there and used to have my own shop. Can this type of post be a regular thing?! I love seeing ideas for future gifts

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback, Samanthology. We do plan on updating it monthly! Let us know if you know of something amazing!

  10. Sarah P

    I love this post! I have an Etsy shop of my own (we make little wooden puzzles!), and I love finding new shops to support!

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ooh, Sarah P, I love wooden puzzles. What’s your shop?

      • Sarah P

        It’s ajoyfulchaoscreation 😊

        • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Thanks! I am checking this out now!

    • Karen

      I have an Etsy shop too. I seel crochet and knitted items. My best seller is an opossum plastic bag holder.

  11. Gigi

    Thanks for doing this post! I sell small paintings on Etsy. It is hard to compete with the big box stores that sell mass produced art.

  12. Tina Straseske

    Love, love, love Etsy!!! I just had some memory bears made out of material for my mom and siblings from my dad’s shirts and jeans that passed away. They are so beautiful and the care and love the seller put into making them definitely shows!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      SO very sorry for your loss, Tina. 💖Thanks for taking a moment to share that with us! SO glad you were pleased with how they turned out! 💞

  13. Laura

    Unfortunately I have a not favorable opinion. My husband bought a Vintage Gucci watch that clearly was a counterfeit when we got it for Christmas even though the seller NEVER stated it was anything but a Gucci. We contacted them- stated we wanted a refund and to return it as it was not real. ( Gucci does not make their internal watch movements in JAPAN) 🤨So between the seller… the unethical practice of Etsy even though it is illegal to sell counterfeit items to protect the seller of counterfeit goods … we can’t get our money back. Throw in PayPal which is even worse… Ever try to call or contact PayPal?? Good luck with that…. We have contacted our credit card company to file a claim against the seller selling counterfeit stuff and hope that at some point we get our money back.
    I will never do business again with Etsy or PayPal due to their obvious practice of protecting criminal behavior.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Very sorry to hear about that, Laura.💞 Thanks for the honest comment and for sharing your experience. Hoping it is resolved for you real soon! 🤞

  14. Darla

    My last three favorites from Etsy

    Hand-knitted thigh high leg warmers and she knitted them as high as I wanted. From Russia

    Handmade fractal puzzles. I got the small coaster ones my friends love them! From the Ukraine

    I got a cutting board for my brother but there’s so many they just cut and paste the pattern into the machine and go. My guy did the artwork based upon a drawing of my brothers Lakefront!!

    Hand turned Beechwood spurtle. Every piece he makes comes with a story of what tree he got the wood from. Unfortunately both of my friends were left-handed but they’re using it! His stuff is beautiful!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for letting us know about your favorites, Darla! 🥰

  15. Erin

    These crayon rolls are a great idea! I keep one in my bag at all times. No more having to hear my kids fighting over 3 crayons at restaurants. https://etsy.me/3r6AzQ2

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How neat! Thanks for the heads up on your Etsy score, Erin! 💖🙌

  16. Amanda Huckins

    The Homestead Candle Co on Etsy are my go to candles for myself and gifts, one of the few candle companies I can burn in my home without getting a headache and the scents are wonderful, the owners offer new ones every month and even have a subscription service for 13.99 shipped I think?

  17. AmandaN

    I sell a lot of personalized items, I’ve been working hard getting items listed on Etsy, I find it hard to get noticed but I’m working on it 😊 If anyone would like to take a look: Catalystartdesign.Etsy.com I hope it’s ok to post about my own Etsy shop on this thread. 😊

      • Claudia

        Your stuff is super cute!

        • AmandaN

          Thank you ❤️

    • Amanda

      I LOVE the cookie sheet ornament! I just favorited it so I can order it after our September baby comes and has a name.

      • AmandaN

        Aww ☺️ I’m so excited to make that for you! ❤️

  18. Linda

    Can anyone suggest me a store where I could purchase dangling clip on earrings? My ears are not pierced and it’s difficult finding good clip-on earrings that don’t pinch my ears. Thanks!

    • AmandaN

      Hello, I’ve never thought to offer clip on varieties on my shop, what kinds are your favorites for the clip on hardware?

  19. Kay

    I agree…pls make Etsy posts a routine. I’m beginning to become an Etsy fan too. I ordered floating shelves fr Poland. Exactly what I’ve been looking for. Much more affordable than what I’ve found on Amazon n other online stores n local businesses. Very hard to find the measurements I want at retail stores. This seller can customize. Haven’t received the shelves yet. Hopefully they’ll turn out fine.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for commenting and for the request, Kay! I’ll be sure to pass that along to the team!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! Thanks for sharing your score!

  20. Teacher

    Please continue with the Etsy posts! I wanted to share a back to school pick as well as a great party favor that I bought on Etsy. These reusable crayon banks have been a big hit among my kids and their friends. https://www.etsy.com/listing/1165255005/crayon-piggy-bank?click_key=b133c26c58a490ebd591b4c9a319507c85911aab%3A1165255005&click_sum=a3e37aff&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=crayon+bank&ref=sr_gallery-1-18&organic_search_click=1&bes=1&variation0=2499547742

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You bet! Thanks so much for the request and the suggestion!
